Propagate appearances from parent multi-body part to split part

David Israel

I have created a multi-body part and I have assigned appearances to some features and faces:

I would like to save the bodies to individual part files and retain the colors that I have already applied in the parent part. Is there any way to do this?


I have tried the methods below, but I haven't been able to find a method that will keep the colors from the parent part in the new split part files.


1. Use Insert > Features > Split. In the Split PropertyManager, select the bodies to save and specify a file name to save the bodies to new part files.

2. After the part has been split, right click on the Solid Bodies folder and choose Save Bodies.

3. Create a new part and go to Insert > Part. Select the parent part and the items to be transferred into the derived part.
